I say we make Josh Horowitz an honourary chauffeur! He asked Robert Pattinson about his next project, Cosmopolis, during last night’s fantastic MTV First interview. Rob mentioned casting, saying he thought the female lead (Elise Shifrin) had been cast but he wasn’t allowed to say. Then the amazing news that Samantha Morton had joined what Rob called the “crazy cast”!
Samantha Morton is a great addition to the cast. She has two Academy Award nominations to her name (1999’s Sweet and Low Down and 2002’s In America) and a great list of credits, both indie and mainstream. Now, who do we think she’s going to play? Twitter speculation was leaning toward Jane but I hope she’s cast as Vija Kinski, Eric’s Chief of Theory.
“He faced her from the jump seat, wondering why he didn’t know how old she was. Her hair was smoky gray and looked lightning-struck, withered and singed, but her face was barely marked except for a large mole high on her cheek.” From Cosmopolis
Whatever the role, I’m thrilled with this casting. Rob’s right, crazy! 🙂
